Question Reistor's

Does anybody have a link to the gauge resistors on the 67-72 trucks? Why the different colors on them?
Do these resistor interchange with outher gauges? I would think so.
Anybody know for sure?

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: Reistor's

Andy I read an article on the gauge resistors and according to them the senders have certain dead spots in their resistance to heat to ground relationships. The sender will have a spot where the coolant heat has to rise quite a bit to effect any movement in the gauge needle.
To smooth that out, the engineers calibrated the resistors to the senders and the gauges and I assume the colors identify the resistance values.

one of our members, Tom TBone has done quite a bit of experimenting on the gauges and resistors and he may know more about the subject also he has a stock of resistors and he repairs gauges and clusters.

Here's a thread by him on fuel gauges so you can PM on the subject.

Thanks Vett,
Yea I was messing with the ramp truck gauges the other week and got the temp gauge working again. I had swapped it over to a tach cluster I had bought and the temp gauge never worked so I did some looking and found what I think was a gas resistor on the temp gauge. I swapped it with another temp gauge I had and checked it per your Ohms readings. it all checked good so I reinstalled and it's working.
That got me thinking about the resistor's. Thanks I PM'ed TBONE1964.

I will send you a PM Andy,

Thanks Tom.

Always enjoy learning from the pro's!

I sent you a couple of link's that say they have the resistors.
